Hydrangea paniculata 'PIIHP-I' PP #23,387 

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones: 4a-9b  Find Your Zone >

Special Attributes

As the dog days of late summer set in and most flowering plants are fading out from their summer performances, the Baby Lace Hydrangea will take center stage in your landscape or garden with a commanding presence similar to that of the Limelight Hydrangea. With its snow cone-shaped creamy white flower clusters, Baby Lace puts on a spectacular show of color in the garden - mid-summer through fall. Soil pH does not effect bloom color. As an added bonus, the blooms make great cut flowers for use in both fresh or dried floral arrangements.



Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing in an upright rounded form 3-4 feet tall and 3-4 feet wide, Baby Lace makes an impressive shrub or tree form specimen all on its own. That said, groupings and hedges of this cultivar are even more spectacular. Also a nice addition to mixed flowering shrub borders, as an accent in home foundation plantings, as a background in perennial gardens, and in large pots, planters or other containers of 18 inches or more in diameter.

Spacing:  3' for solid hedges; 7'+ for space between plants


Baby Lace Hydrangea is exceptionally easy to grow when planted right and in the right spot.  Almost any moist but well-drained soil of average fertility will do. Baby Lace can take the heat at our location here in north-central Georgia, but it's also exceptionally cold hardy, withstanding even the coldest winter temperatures as far north as USDA Zone 3a, where it will also tolerate full, all day sun. In the South, zones 7 and below, it will tolerate full sun, but we've seen it perform and look its best with some filtered sun or dappled shade during the hottest hours of summer afternoons. We recommend at least 5 hours of direct sunlight per day or all day lightly filtered sun for best flowering. Too much shade and plants become floppy with diminished flowering.

Note:  Baby Lace is a Hydrangea paniculata species that produces its flowers from buds that are formed on "new wood" (the current season's growth). This means you don't want to prune them in late spring or summer when they're preparing to bloom.
